Offi­cial selec­tion at sev­er­al film fes­ti­vals dur­ing 2016

In 1964, a band of hip­pies known as the Mer­ry Pranksters, who were cohorts and fol­low­ers of author Ken Kesey, gave a school bus they named “Furthur” a psy­che­del­ic paint job and drove it from Cal­i­for­nia to New York, par­ty­ing all the way.

Now Kesey’s son Zane has tak­en his father’s lega­cy back on the road. Armed with a new band of Mer­ry Pranksters, the Furthur bus trav­eled over 15,000 miles in 75 days, vis­it­ing music fes­ti­vals, com­mu­ni­ty events, trib­al gath­er­ings, and nation­al landmarks.

Through nev­er-before-seen archival footage, as well as over 300 hours of film shot over the course of three months, Going Furthur explores the roots of a cul­ture birthed in the ear­ly 60s, and how the mis­sion of those first few ide­al­ists has influ­enced the coun­ter­cul­ture of today.
